Built and Engineered for Legendary Audio Performance

Aimed at music lovers looking to discover or rediscover the magic of analog sound, the CP-1050 features a super-smooth low-torque direct-drive motor that reduces low-frequency cogging noise as well as the high-frequency noise produced by some belt-driven designs which use a fast-spinning electric motor. The CP-1050 can play both 33s and 45s, and comes with an adapter for 7-inch records.

The body is constructed from thick, vibration-damping MDF and the platter is die-cast aluminum for smooth, precise, and stable rotation. Together with the low-noise motor and rubber slip-mat, the precision craftsmanship and weight of the deck combine to effectively reduce vibration for clear and open analog sound.

Est. 1946

As you would expect from a company that created its first crystal turntable pickup for the CP-1000 back in 1946, every aspect of the design has been engineered to deliver audio performance well beyond its suggested price.
